Information about the song

All the fans down in Camden Yards
They know that Cal has come to play
And for many years (oh whey oh)
They knew they'd see him every day

And all the folks sell their wares
Near the park down on Eutaw Street
We hear them say (oh whey oh)
Cheers for Cal while they stomp their feet

Baseball fans throughout the land say
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Play like a Cal Ripken

And folks who watch on TV
They drink their beer out of the can
They see Cal play (oh whey oh)
And they are sure that he's the man

All the school kids in Little League
Pick up the phone to call a pal
When they grow up (oh whey oh)
They want to play ball just like Cal

All the guards down in Camden Yards say
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Play like a Cal Ripken

(whistling interlude)
Although last year Cal did sit
He had some problems with his back
He hits the ball (oh whey oh)
And it still sounds like quite a smack

If you want to find all the cops
When Cal's at bat, they have to stop
They watch him swing (oh whey oh)
They know that three thousand's quite a lot

All the Japanese know full well
Cal's mighty streak of many games
And the Chinese too (oh whey oh)
Cheer for the man and call his name

And in Paree, they say merci and
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Play like a Cal Ripken
Play like a Cal Ripken

April 22, 2000: This song was written after Cal Ripken got his 3,000th and then followed up by hitting a walk-off home run. And, yes, I know this song title is a terrible play on words.
